The Faith Factor in Climate Change
Public Religion Research Institute

The most religious Americans are the most skeptical about climate science. White evangelical protestants, Mormons, and white non-evangelical protestants are the least likely groups to believe in human-caused climate change. White and Black Christians are the most likely to believe in the “end of times” as described in the Bible. Christians across the board agree that living up to our God-given role as stewards of the earth is extremely or very important. Mormons describe the highest degree of “deep spiritual connection” to the earth, among all groups. The most religious Americans are also the least likely to support a wide array of climate policies.
